For me, it's rare. Especially if hardly anybody is around. Rolling stop, baby!

personally, I think a full stop at an unoccupied intersection is unsafe... I usually gear down to the lowest gear, approach at about 4 mph and drift on through if there's nothing in sight, and I look hard... lord, hope the local police aren't reading this, but a full stop in a wasteland just seems foolish

California stops are the norm for most of the drivers I observe. I would estimate about 99% fall into this category.
